Roger Federer’s Wimbledon record

06/28/2018
Graphic News

July 2-15, 2018 -- Roger Federer is chasing a ninth men’s singles title, having set the record with eight victories in 2017. Another trophy would match the record of Martina Navratilova, who won nine women’s singles titles between 1978 and 1990.

Despite approaching his 37th birthday, Federer will still start his 20th Wimbledon as the overwhelming favourite to clinch a 21st Grand Slam.

Federer won his first Wimbledon -- and maiden Grand Slam -- in 2003. Fourteen years later, and without a win in SW19 since 2012, he clinched his eighth title beating Croatia’s Marin Cilic in a 6-3, 6-1, 6-4 face-off.

Federer also co-holds, with Björn Borg, the record for most consecutive Wimbledon victories with five: Borg between 1976 and 1980 and Federer from 2003 to 2007.


21 days to go until NEW GRAPHIC NEWS - a new website for a new era.

28 years ago — April 2, 1991 — the original Graphic News launched using a precursor to today’s websites that used email technology. These enabled infographics to be delivered electronically around the world over telephone lines. What was possible was very limited - It took 10 minutes for a 100K file to download.

Since then delivery speeds and website technology have moved on. The new website will offer the best online experience possible now, adding many new features (and offering new opportunities for the future), but still enabling existing users to select and download infographics and enjoy the distinct brand of visual journalism that is Graphic News.


Over the coming days I will give further information. Please contact me if you have any questions. Fiona Roberts, froberts @ graphicnews.com
